hair algae in brackish or marine tanks?


Does hair algae grow in brackish or marine tanks like it does in freshwater?

This was one of the better days



Though it doesn't look anything close to that now. I used a product called algaefix and it can be used in both FW and marine. I tell ya it was maybe 2-3 weeks and I would say 90% of all the algae was gone.
